Last week, I was blessed with the opportunity to photograph my third member of the Liddy family from Olmsted Falls. Sean, like Donnie and Melanie before him, was fun to photograph. His confident manner was easy to capture in his portraits.
Just like his parents, Teri and Don, Sean will be the kind of person to motivate others to accomplish great things.
To see more of Sean's portraits, watch his video on YouTube or Facebook.

This post is in recognition of The 60th Anniversary of the Korean War.
The years 2010-2013 mark the 60th anniversary of the Korean War. June 25, 1950 through July 27, 1953.
Photos can have a completely different “feel” depending on when they are taken. A night scene can have a more eerie feel than the same photo taken in daylight.
For example, the Korean War Veterans Memorial located in Washington, D.C. is a setting that best conveys the feel of death and despair when shot at night. There are 19 stainless steel statues standing between 7 feet 3 inches and 7 feet 6 inches tall representing a squad on patrol in the rugged terrain of Korea. They appear more ominous in the night photo seen here. Continue reading

By now, you've seen the photo of the 33-foot, 40-ton whale that crash-landed on a sailboat off Cape Town. When I first saw it, I immediately thought something was “fishy” with the picture. I've seen photos of huge fish hanging on ordinary fishing poles that were created by combining two different photos in Adobe Premiere Elements or Adobe Photoshop. Apparently the recent whale photo is the real deal!
To show how two different photos can be merged together to create the unexpected, I took a photo of a golfer (David Gillock – Mayor of North Ridgeville, Ohio) and combined it with a squirrel photo. The image seen here was used on a calendar for the North Ridgeville Rotary Club.
A couple other photos for the calendar were created in a similar fashion. Check them out at http://bit.ly/b8Wgid

When I first saw the photo of the 33-foot, 40-ton whale that crash-landed on a sailboat off Cape Town, I thought the picture was a fake.
For years photos similar to this have been created by combining two different pictures in Adobe Premiere Elements or Adobe Photoshop. Apparently the whale photo was not done this way but is an actual, unmanipulated image. I can't imagine what a shock that would have been to see that huge creature landing in my boat!
To show how two different photos can be merged together to create the unexpected, I took a photo of a dentist (Dr. Casey O'Conor of North Ridgeville, Ohio) and combined it with a photo of model teeth. The image seen here was used on a calendar for the North Ridgeville Rotary Club.

UFOs or “Unexpected Flying Objects” in your photos will grab the viewers attention every time.
It is not easy (or safe!) to have a ball thrown or hit at you for a dramatic photo. The photos at left show the original photo and then a golf ball digitally added to the scene. The ball was photographed separately and then traced and removed from its photo. It was then added to the scene with the golfer and modified to appear to be flying toward the camera. Continue reading
